Iraq’s interior minister has resigned and said a deputy would take over his responsibilities, a few days after the deadliest of many car bombings in Baghdad since the Iraq war.

Muhammad Ghabban made the announcement at a news conference on Tuesday in Baghdad, a video of which was posted on his Facebook page. His resignation will be official only if the prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, approves it. Abadi’s office had no immediate comment.

The death toll from the suicide bombing in Baghdad’s of Karrada on Saturday has reached 250, Iraq’s health ministry said.

It was the worst single car bomb attack in Iraq since US forces toppled Saddam Hussein 13 years ago and deepened the anger of many Iraqis over the weak performance of the security apparatus.
